Although scores of GOP foreign policy specialists wrote an open letter denouncing various Trump views as "unmoored in principle", "a recipe for economic disaster", "inexusable", or reflecting "the sentiment of a racketeer", Phares decided he could help the candidate. "You have to get the information and you have to get it rapidly".

We'll keep a close eye on the activities of Anonymous and would let you know of all the developments. They don't work within laws - they have no laws. Torture would violate current law and has been called ineffective or unreliable by many specialists in interrogation.
"They want to go by Sharia law", Trump elaborated, trading the dog whistle for a klaxon.
Trump has vacillated in his campaign about whether or not he would pursue using waterboarding - which is considered torture and thus illegal. Today it's an armed camp.
"You need surveillance", he said.
He has a big lead in convention delegates who will pick the Republican nominee, defying weeks of attacks from members of the party establishment anxious he will lead the Republicans to defeat in November.

My thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the attacks and with the people of Belgium. He called the strike "another cowardly attempt to terrorize innocent civilians". And I'm not talking about the attack today. "This type of barbarism can not be allowed to continue", he said.
He also tweeted, "We offer our deepest condolences to the people of Brussels and stand with our European allies to offer any necessary assistance".
"Our freedom is once again under attack", said a computerized voice in the latest video. "We are not fighting a religion", Sanders told reporters.
Anonymous is not taking Tuesday's terror attacks on Belgium lying down.
Waterboarding, the practice of pouring water over someone's face to simulate drowning as an interrogation tactic, was banned by President Barack Obama days after he took office in 2009.
Presidential candidates immediately addressed the attacks.
And Brussels also proves we're in a war we're not ending or winning. While Trump and Texas Sen.
